last april

Been letting go of weights
been taking on the weight of my own self preservation and dignity

Been learning how to give weight to intimacy and softness and love
for a man who challenges my many, everyday thoughts

Been learning to wait on my own assumptions and to suck up my gumption
just wait

Been detaching the weights of burden and detaching the weight of hurting for the sake of my mother
then releasing the hooks of a brother whose weightlessness is confounding
